Some hugsare appropriate, o<strong>the</strong>rs: not so much.According to <strong>the</strong> RHS student handbook page30, rule #22 students, demonstrating affection for oneano<strong>the</strong>r includes touching, fondling, kissing, hugging orany o<strong>the</strong>r conduct that may be considered sexual innature will be subject to disciplinary action. 95 percent of<strong>the</strong> RHS student body said that administration shouldabolish <strong>the</strong> hugging rule in school.There are girls hugging girls, girls hugging guys,and occasionally guys hugging guys (most of <strong>the</strong> time asa joke). “There are many different kinds of hugs. Thereare side, one arm, tapping on <strong>the</strong> back (when you don’twant to hug <strong>the</strong>m), I love you and I’m only hugging youbecause I have to,” says Junior Chelsea Mrazik. Thereare many ‘hug-o-holics’ in RHS. Mrazik admits that she isone of <strong>the</strong>se people.Sometimes people just need a hug for supportor some different personal reasons. Junior Jesse Hodgessays, “I give everyone a hug that wants one”. •They could be written up if <strong>the</strong>y werenot careful.

In a survey conducted byAmanda Seward, Journal ism one student, 80percent of <strong>the</strong> students at RHS say that in somerooms it is too cold and in o<strong>the</strong>rs it feels l ike it’stoo hot.
